The 2006 defense kinda scares me and makes me glad I'm on my couch and not on the field playing against people like that. David Harris is probably still writing mothers apologies for the hits he put on their kids that year.

All of the players from that D that went to the NFL not to mention the talent on the offense that went to the NFL just adds more fuel to the fire that they werent able to win the NC that year.

The last few years make me respect that defense so much more than I did back in 2006. You don't know what you got till it's gone, I guess. Pretty cool video. Makes me wonder when we will have another great defense.

Given the fact that the average life expectancy for an NFL player is like 56 and they are something like 40 times more likely to develop degenerative brain illness than the general public (I don't know of statistics for college football but at this level I assume it is not good for you) is it appropriate to celebrate "big hits" -- even clean ones?

It's a legitimate question not a rhetorical one, because I don't know how else to make a defense highlight video and this was a lot of fun.

Anyway, I'm prepared to lose the 21 points I have worked so hard to accumulate.

I enjoy reading up on mgoblog, but have never chimed in; however, in this case, 2006 was THE YEAR of big hits.  My most memorable was Alan Branch's (2) huge bear hug tackles that took out PSU's 1st & 2nd string QBs.  Can't wait to see who our standouts will be this year!
